Now we have to pay some attention to the results in NTFS file system:
During file writing (creation) Seagate Momentus 5400.3 (ST9160821A) manages to get fast enough to follow close behind the leader, its predecessor – Seagate Momentus 5400.2 (ST9120821A). Our newcomer fell just a little bit behind the leader, and even dashed ahead in one of the patterns.
The read speed of Seagate Momentus 5400.3 (ST9160821A) was high enough to bring it the absolute victory. In three patterns out of five it was faster than its two major opponents: Fujitsu MHV2100AH and Seagate ST9120821A.
The diagram with the file copy results obtained within the same partition gives us to understand that Seagate Momentus 5400.3 (ST9160821A) runs practically as fast as Fujitsu MHV2100AH and Seagate Momentus 5400.2 (ST9120821A). So, we see evident parity here.
The last diagram gives us an idea about how fast the files can be copied between partitions. Once again we see that there is no absolute performance leader here, but if we take into account the results obtained in all five patterns then the laurels will be given to Seagate ST9120821A. Our today’s main hero wins the prestigious second prize because it is generally faster than one of its major rivals – the Fujitsu drive.
